EFFECTS OF DEMOGRAPHIC FACTOR IN ELECTION
Choose one of the following topics and write a 2-4-page double-spaced paper. Proper grammar and spelling is required. Papers must include a cover page, 2-4 full pages of content, and a bibliography. All sources must be good, academic, peer reviewed sources. This means that most websites (Wikipedia, answers.com, and similar websites) are disqualified. If you can’t identify an author and date that’s a good sign that the source needs to be carefully evaluated and, most likely, not used. You may refer to encyclopedias and textbooks, but their use should be very minimal.
